Elton John and a stage full of hotties at a charity event

Okay so you may not be a fan of Elton John but you have to admit he doesn’t do anything small.  His entire career has been built around his over the top fashion sense and wildly impassioned concert performances (not to mention those signature glasses of his – donned when he was a kid as a tribute to his idle Buddy Holly).  So it should come as no surprise that his latest venture onto the stage is just as elaborate and just as entertaining as the past.

Carnegie Hall held a charity event featuring Madonna, Lady Gaga and Sting dressed up in drag and Elton took the stage supported by a cast of hunky underwear clad male back up dancers.  I am sure he was enjoying every minute of it.  The Rainforest Fund along with Sting’s wife Trudie Styler produced the event to support the preservation of rain forests across the world.  I thought you would enjoy these pictures from the event.

I will give it to Elton, at 63 he is still commanding the stage with his electrifying performances.  In his four decade career, Elton John has sold more than 250 million records making him one of the most successful artist of all time.  The single “Candle In The Wind” produced in 1997 single handedly sold more than 37 million copies becoming one of the best selling singles of all time.  He has more than 50 Top 40 hits, including seven consecutive No. 1 U.S.

albums, 56 Top 40 singles, 16 Top 10, four No. 2 hits, and nine No. 1 hits. He has won five Grammy awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Tony Award.  In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him Number 49 on its list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.  Elton John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, was knighted Sir Elton John in 1998 and entered into a civil partnership with his partner David Furnish in 2005.  He continues to this day to be a staunch advocate on the worldwide fight to combat AIDS.

Way to go Sir Elton!!
